Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson says the latest move will help improve and streamline the service, and the moves online go to the following:

  • Angling guide, game guide outfitters and transporters’ licences
  • Export permits
  • Transportation permits for endangered species, rainbow trout and farmed sturgeon
  • Scientific fish collection permits
  • Fur trade and trapping licences
  • Various permits specifically required under the Wildlife Act, including permits for:
    1. possessing dead wildlife or wildlife parts
    2. capturing, possessing or importing live wildlife
    3. rehabilitating injured wildlife
    4. operating a vehicle in an area closed under the act

Hunting and fishing licences will continue to be available through retailers, while fishing licences will also be sold online.
